Susan M. Kowalczyk

October 18, 1953 ~ August 25, 2021 (age 67)


Susan M. Kowalczyk, 67, of Marshfield, passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2021, at home.

She was born on Oct. 18, 1953, in Stanley, to the late Joseph S. and Carolyn (Cukla) Kowalczyk, and attended school in Gilman through the 11th grade, and graduated high school in Loyal in 1971.

Susan enjoyed all types of crafts, sewing, crocheting, and knitting, making the most beautiful clothing, afghans and accessories. She was a perfectionist – she could have 20 rows done, and if she spied a stitch out of line, she would rip it all out and start over.

She loved to binge on movies (the ones that would come as an entire series). She also enjoyed cooking and baking for the holidays. She especially loved her cats and children.

Susan had worked at the Loyal Canning Co., the telephone company in Marshfield as an operator, cleaned at the Old Dutch Motel, and most recently prior to retirement, she worked at Marshfield’s Parks & Rec’s Wildwood Park.

Survivors include her son, Jason Reckner of Rock Springs, Wisc.; daughter, Josianne Reckner of Marshfield; brothers, Rodney Kowalczyk of Loyal, and Robin Kowalczyk of Marshfield; sister, Laurie Kowalczyk of Loyal; nephew, Eliot (Amanda) Kowalczyk – and their children, great-nieces Charley and Parker Kowalczyk of Neillsville.

A Celebration of Life gathering will be held from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Sunday, October 3rd, 2021, at the Wildwood Zoo shelter: 608 W. 17th Street, Marshfield, WI 54449.
